i've an rxv1300 and have my older speakers wired to b terminals. i've gone into the set up and changed the b speakers to remote. the b speakers are hooked up okay in the garage, and they play. i un-select the a speakers when i play the speakers in the garage, but the sub stays active. at this time i need to manually shut the sub off. is this a failing of the yammi, or have i missed something simple? the sub is an ep350, connected with a + and - cable to the receiver.

To what terminals is your sub attached? From your post, it sounds as if you are using the speaker-level connection. Do you have the option of connecting it using the line-level option to a sub pre-out?

i'm confused about your question. i have the two cables connected to: output, left and main on the yammi. then connected to the sub positive and negative terminals.

Oh no! Now I'm confused

Let me start over. What kind of cable(s) do you have running between your sub and the Yamaha: stereo RCA or standard speaker cable?

stereo rca, one pair, a plus and negative, which plugged right into the ep350, and two ports on the yammi

I think I've found your problem. I found an image of the back of your receiver on this page.

You should be using a single RCA cable between the receiver and the sub. Plug one end into the Subwoofer Output (there's only one) and the other end into either the left or right input on your sub -- it doesn't matter which.

Dan, Peter's right, but now I'm curious: what two outputs on your 1300 do you have the sub connected to? If you're using anything other than the single sub output you probably haven't been getting proper bass management.

so, i should take one of the two leads i'm using now and connect it to the other port on the receiver, and simply leave the two connected to the sub as they are since only one will be active?

well, i'm presently using the two ports, labeled output, L & R just to the right of the subwoofer single output. i bought the twin cables from rat shack before the sub arrived. since the sub had two input ports on it, and there were two ports labeled output on the receiver, i figured they went there. i thought i could use either a single cable, or the twin supplied by ratshack. having just recently hooking up B speakers, this wasn't an issue. this weekend, i'll swap out the connection, and report back.

No. That will possibly results in a bad hum from the sub. Say: "NEVER LEAVE NO DANGLING CABLE NOWHERE!"

You need only ONE coax RCA cable (or use only ONE in the pair), which should go from the SUBWOOFER output of the receiver to ONE of the line-level input on the sub. No more connections.
